Functional yet whimsical—that about describes the kitchen utensils of Italian designer Alberto Alessi (love his spiderlike lemon squeezer), and this is his North American flagship. It’s a great place to find a gift, though most end up getting something for themselves, too, like a silver beaver shaped pencil sharpener or one of their oh-so-cute kettles. Open Monday to Saturday 10am to 6pm.
